Willowdene Christmas Holiday Club

Marilyn contacted me asking me to let you all know about the Willowdene Christmas Holiday Club:

Willowdene Holiday Club is open every school holiday for children aged 4 – 12 yrs. Affiliated  with Willowdene Nursery School the Club provides high quality, affordable and reliable childcare.

Open 7.30-6.00 each day, we offer flexible booking by the hour, with all day and half day discounted rates.

Dates open over Christmas are December 21st & 24th and Jan 2nd – 4th.

Ofsted registered, we provide a professional service in a happy, safe and stimulating environment. Based at Christ Church, Chineham we aim to inspire and motivate the children with a variety of activities for both indoors and out. We introduce play that challenges the children’s imaginations e.g. den making, and with the woods around us we are able to go on Nature walks, bug hunts and picnics. We also take the children to the Library and local parks. With the emphasis on fun , the children enjoy an action packed time and each day is different.

For further details please contact us at willowdene@btconnect.com or 01256 324191.

Thanks Marilyn!

Willowdene Holiday Club for children aged 5 -12 yrs

For school aged children Holiday Clubs are now held at Christ Church (opposite Willowdene) meaning we have more space and better age related activities for the school aged child. We are open every school holiday and Four Lanes Inset days catering for children aged 5-12 yrs **

(** Reception aged children will be given the choice either to attend the Holiday Club at the Nursery, or at Christ Church).

Activities are planned and prepared according to the children’s interests and each day is different. We introduce play that challenges the children’s imaginations e.g. den making, and with the woods around us we are able to go on Nature walks, bug hunts and picnics. We also take the children to the Library and local parks.

Some activities the children have enjoyed this summer include
• Fashion designing with a variety of materials
• Picking blackberries and making them into delicious pies
• Test Lab Tuesday – scientific experiments with Tizzy the test lab technician
• Walking to the shopping centre to buy the ingredients to make our own lunches.

Holiday Care also available for Nursery aged children at Willowdene Nursery School.

Summer Holiday 2012 Activities

So, the Summer Holidays are here. Yay! Although I’m not really affected by them yet as my little one is quite a way off from being at school. However, I know that a lot of you will be worried about money and how to keep your little one’s occupied without breaking the bank.

I found a few articles last year that I didn’t get a chance to post, so I’ve included these below. I’m also putting together a few follow up posts with lists of free things to do in the area this summer when it’s sunny or raining. I have lots of posts that I’m planning to publish this summer that should help to stem the boredom and not break the bank.

Don’t forget to check out this published post HERE with 7 ideas for how to keep your little ones busy when it’s raining.

With a little bit of advanced planning, you won’t lose your sanity or your wallet! Best of luck and hope it’s an enjoyable Summer for you and your family!

Summer activities

Memory board: Create a memory board with your little one about an event that you’ve been too or a day out that you’ve recently had.
Paint rocks: I’m not particularly creative but I think I could stretch to painting ladybirds on rocks. It’s whether you can find the right rock/stone first!
Photo book: This could be a family activity where your little ones choose which pictures they want included in a photo book. Maybe one picture a day?
Pick your own: Look out for a future post that will have details about the local Pick Your Own farms in the area. (post HERE)
